I sent this out last week but thought I should post it here as well…
Apologies for the late New Years email, I returned from a month without internet access just last week and dove into 2500 unread emails, along with countless other backlogged items.
I wanted to wish you all a great 2011 and send out a short update. For me, 2011 started off with a bang with the sale of Olliance to BlackDuck. I was also privileged to participate in a number of interesting startups in 2010, including Chikpea, Earthster, Equalis and a few others I can’t mention. The last two quarters of 2010 saw a large upswing in activity on all fronts, and this looks set to continue into 2011.
For 2011, I’m continuing to mentor, focus, support and advise companies & non-profits, from startup to global 1000, all while looking for that next ‘big idea’…. As you might imagine given my broad interests, I’m casting a pretty wide net, from light manufacturing, to sustainability to computing technology.
I’ll also be attempting to spend more time nurturing neglected personal and professional relationships, something I’ve never been particularly good at. In that vein: Don’t be a stranger! Please feel free to contact me anytime, by whatever medium works best for you.
Wishing you and your family a prosperous 2011,
